Journey to Mexico's Colonial Heartland
Mexico is an amazing destination!
For February 2020 we would like to plan a 15-day sightseeing and foodie tour of the colonial heartland of Mexico. The completion date is February 22nd.
For this event to happen, the minimum group size is six (includes Ed and me). The maximum is eight.

Some pictures and video clips from our February 2019 Mexico road trip,
We plan to fly to Mexico City for this event and have a day or two in CDMX before embarking on the road trip by inter-city buses.
The highlights include the El Rosario Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary which is the winter nesting grounds for millions of monarch butterflies that migrate from Canada and the U.S. each year. It is an awesome sight that you have to see for yourself.
Grutas Tolantongo hotsprings is on the itinerary as well, thanks to Miriam for her suggestion.
Some of the cities we will be visiting include: Guanajuato, Querétaro, San Miguel de Allende and Morelia as well as a couple of Pueblos Magicos or “Magic Towns” along the way.
At a later date, I will have more details for the members who are attending.
